As a 12 year old in 1954 I was sleeping in the back yard.
While gazing up at the stars I noticed a very small point of steady white light moving upward from just above the horizon.
Its appearance was like a very dim star.
It slowly travelled across the sky and after about 30 minutes it disappeared.
If it had been a few years later I would have assumed it was a satellite.
Bright flash in Bellingham area.
A flash of light lit my whole house, my dog freaked out.
At the same time, a friend who lives 15 miles away witnessed this same light and his dog freaked out, as well.
I was wondering if anyone else noticed this.
I have never seen a UFO and don't necessarily believe in them, but I can not think of another explanation.
My girlfriend has witnessed a similar occurrence.
